Verigenics(R) Awarded a Patent for Its RFID Tracking System that Withstands Gamma Irradiation
The Verigenics has received U.S. Patent Number 8,519,846 for its GammaTag(R) RFID technology. The system uses durable RFID tags, labels, and reader-writers to track and identify components requiring gamma irradiation for sterilization purposes.
By: NewAge Industries, Inc.
“This patent complements our existing portfolio and further enhances our position in the marketplace as the leader in process equipment tracking,” said Jeffrey D. Johnson, Verigenics’ director and the system’s co-inventor. “Our software solutions and durable RFID tagging options offer effective asset tracking from cradle to grave, regardless of sterilization method.”

GammaTag was the first read-write radio frequency identification tag to handle gamma irradiation with no loss of data, as earlier generations of tags and labels were damaged by the sterilization process. The tags work with RFID reader-writers to electronically track and identify tagged components.
Other patented RFID systems from Verigenics include the P•E•T Process Equipment Tracking(R) and Hose Track(R) Identification & Lifecycle Analysis Systems.
